upgrade your lenses to new transitions® signature™. breaking overnight, olympic threat. the same group responsible for the deadly bus bombing in russia now warning the games are the next target. the chilling video and the vows of an olympic surprise. fiery wreck, two semis crash and burst into flames on a snowy highway, triggering a chain of accidents and closes an interstate in indiana. this as america braces for the return of the polar vortex. he's sorry, the star of abc's hit reality show "the bachelor" apologizes for what the network calls his careless, thoughtless and insensitive comments. what he said that fueled the firestorm.
and the big winners at the screen actors guild awards. sara hanes is on the red carpet and backstage with the stars of "the american hustle, " "breaking bad" -- >> i won an s.a.g. award! >> and "dallas buyers club." >> good morning, america. hey, good morning, and happy sunday. i'm always happy to see bianna and ron. but i should say, it's just a little bit lonely on the desk this morning. a little bit. >> that chair is empty over to the left. ron is going through withdrawal this morning. >> there it is. >> your partner in crime sara haines isn't with us. she is on the red carpet. covering the screen actors guild awards. i stayed up too late watching it. i had to tune in to see what everyone was wearing. cate blanchett knocked it out of the park.
>> i also thought jennifer garner looked beautiful in that navy ensemble. it was gorgeous. and i'm not a fashionista, but i do know that was beautiful. >> yes, that qualifies. great to see you. i hope you had fun, we'll get to you later on in the show. >> i heard you in the ear before i went on, she's in the west coast, and it's early and i heard her say, man, it's early right now. >> that's the pitfall of having to report live from the west coast. you know, i don't feel sorry for you. that was a fun event. i'm sure you had a great time. >> i did, i did. >> thank you. and much more coming up. we'll start with the new threat to the winter olympics. less than three weeks away. look at this video that came out overnight. these are purportedly the young men who carried out a terror attack, not far from sochi. where the games will be played. you can see them preparing a bomb and issuing a fresh threat. straight to the newest member of the foreign reporting team, hamish macdonald.
who is in the london bureau. hamish, good morning. >> good morning, dan. the group that is represented in the video, it's called ansa al suna. it's one of the groups based in the insurgent grouped based in dagistan. the same region that sochi is located in. the two guys were in the attack at the end of last year, targeting public transport. killed a number of people. the video always shows them preparing their bombmaking materials. ominously, however, they say there will be further attacks during the olympic games. there is a specific threat made to people planning to visit. there will be a surprise package for tourists visiting sochi during the winter olympics. now at the same time, the russian security forces released another video which demonstrates a security operation that took place on saturday in the
caucuses region, attacking militants. now, we can't independently verify the location and the timing of the video. but they say it happened on saturday and it killed a number of insurgents. it's fair to say that a few weeks out from the olympic games that the focus it almost entirely on security. reports out today suggest that the security operation in sochi will dwarf that that was here in london. you remember during the games, there were huge numbers of troops, police on the streets, patrolling to make sure the games went safely. now we're hearing today that double the number will be present in sochi over the next month or so. dan? >> estimates of 70,000 security officials. some worry it could spoil the spirit of the games. all that security. hamish, thank you. and welcome to abc news. and another big issue over the games. russia's infamous new anti-gay laws. george stephanopoulos is the first american journalist to interview the russian president in years, and he asked about it directly.
>> if gay and lesbian athletes engage in some sort of protest, wear a rainbow pin or other protest, will they will free from persecution under the propagation law? >> translator: acts of protest and propaganda are different things. i'd like to ask my colleagues and friends as they try to criticize us, it would do well to set their own house in order first. i did say, after all, and this is public knowledge, that in some of the states in the u.s., homosexuality remains a crime. >> putin rarely fails to be provocative. george also spoke to him about the olympic terror threats, of course, and the nsa leaker edward snowden. and you can watch the full interview on "this week." right here on abc. >> it's been described as one of the most intensive security operation in the olympics history. one of the safest city in the
world in the games. turn now to ron with this morning's other top stories developing overnight. >> good morning, everyone. we are learning that a third american was among those killed in a suicide bomb attack at a restaurant in afghanistan. friday's assault at a lebanese eatery in kabul, the capital city, frequented by foreigners left 21 people dead. two of the americans have been identified. alexis kamerman and alexandros peterson. both employees of the american university of afghanistan. the third victim works for unicef. the taliban claimed responsibility. and the flu widespread in 40 states. according to the latest figures from the cdc. the virus is taking its toll on the most vulnerable. in the past week alone, ten children have died. flu season runs until april. help officials are urging anyone who has not gotten the flu shot to get it. it's not too late. and in indiana, a pileup on interstate 65. local police say the drivers and cars following a semitruck were not able to stop in time after
the rig suddenly slowed down on the interstate. the slick, icy roads may be to blame. the chain reaction crash that followed. one truck with frozen pizzas erupted in flames. a second truck carrying lights also caught fire. four people were injured in that wreck. and former nba star dennis rodman has checked into rehab. rodman's agent says that he is getting treatment for alcoholism after his recent trip in north korea. he apologized for comments he made about american and american missionaries being detained in that country. he had been drinking before the interview in which he made those remarks. and a major upset down under. tennis star serena williams knocked out of the australian open by 14th ranked -- 14th seeded ana ivanovic. it snaps her 25-game winning streak. >> just too hot down there. the record temperatures. >> i think so.
next time. >> i'm sure. thanks, ron. turn now to the ongoing drama surrounded new jersey governor chris christie. he's on a fund-raising trip to florida right now. but back home there are new accusations shaking his administration. a mayor charging a shakedown from the top christie lieutenant has the governor's office on major defense this morning, and ryan smith has the latest. >> reporter: on the left-leaning news channel mssmbs nbc, the mayor of hoboken, new jersey, accusing the christie administration of delivering a message for the governor with devastating implications. >> i had a direct message, they're connecting the sandy funs to this. >> reporter: according to mayor zimmer, when she voiced concern about the construction project expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, the lieutenant governor pressed her to reconsider. >> she pulled me aside in the parking lot, and i said i know it's not right. the things should not be
connected but they are. if you tell anyone, i will deny it. >> reporter: overnight, the christie administration is fighting back, calling the allegations, quote, outlandishly false. how much did they receive? she said they only received $342,000. the christie administration says hoboken was approved for $70 million in federal aid and is targeted for more. the governor's office denying impropiety here. denying them, but no one can deny they come at a bad time. >> the speculation about the truth of these allegations really damages him moving forward. these are difficult charges for him to get past. >> reporter: we reached out repeatedly to mayor zimmer, she didn't return our request for comment. but, serious trouble here in new jersey. >> worth noting, though, he remains popular at this point. and his response to this story, very defiant. >> reporter: yes. she paints a conflicts picture. she had tweets and stuff like
that, and supported governor christie for his help with sandy and now this particular thing happened. and the administration struck back hard, saying she has supported him and the allegations are not true. >> interesting to see if we hear from other politicians in the days and weeks. great to see you. thank you. and now for the country's most exclusive dance party. we weren't invited to this. i'm not offended. the white house for one night, turned in a discotheque of sorts. in celebration of michelle obama turning the big 5-0. so horse who are the superstars who made the list? >> susan sulny has details on the event. including the special performances and surprises for the first lady. good morning. >> good morning. now, we don't usually think of the white house as party central but that is exactly what it was last night, until the wee hours this morning. samuel l. jackson, james taylor, rachael ray, just a few of the
parties at michelle obama's big 5-0. even beyonce gave michelle a personal birthday performance. >> and then beyonce performanced, and wow. >> reporter: obama made sure to make michelle's day perfect. announcing in a recent bill signing -- >> i have to get back. someone is having a birthday today. >> reporter: and guests could not stop talking about obama's very emotional speech about his first lady. >> moving and inspiring. >> talking about the love for her daughters. >> beautiful and touching. >> reporter: overnight, the white house was bumping. >> i'm definitely bouncing. i'm going to have a good time. >> reporter: big question for the vip list, what gift do you get her? but one year older, she knows how to get down and party, now with vip access to a new club, tweeting, excited to join barack in the 50 plus club today. check out my aarp club.

>> reporter: later today in a stadium famous for being the loudest in the nfl, seattle seahawks number 40 will be the only player who sees the fans cheering but can't hear them very well. fullback derrick coleman is the first legally deaf offensive player in the nfl. and he wouldn't change a thing. >> being deaf is who i am. i'm not going to let someone else come in here and tell me, you're deaf. it made me who i am today. >> reporter: coleman's life story making him the unlikely star of this duracell battery commercial that has gone viral. >> they told me it couldn't be done. >> reporter: the chilling ad is no story. it's coleman's life. >> gave up on me. told me i should just quit. >> reporter: early on, his hearing aids were a problem. they just didn't fit or work right inside his helmet. until his mother had an idea. >> i took a pair of panty hose and i cut them, and we stuck the

was the gratefulness. >> yeah, and to see everyone cheering lupita on when she won. and they did a close shot of julia roberts, nominated as well. and all the ladies looked fantastic. we were just talking about, what a year for matthew mcconaughey. his career transcended, and the wolf of wall street and dallas buyers club. two great movies. >> and sara, i wouldn't help but notice watching your piece, which was great, by the way. many of the cast, seem really bonded. especially "modern family," we spend time watching them, we feel like we know them. did you get that sense meeting them in person? they are very close? >> reporter: it was a fan's dream, "modern family" and "breaking bad" -- the banter. there was a point, with "breaking bad," i'm going to use their character names because those are the tip of their tongue right now. hank was referring to his nephew, and he said, don't take like that, i'm still your uncle. some of the banter was so
familial, you want to believe when you're a fan. you want to believe they all just hang out together. >> probably feel the way we do on the set here as the family we are. >> ron pleases me off-camera as well. sara, thank you very much. great work. sorry for the lack of sleep. we'll see you in the next half hour. >> can't wait. >> great piece. time to check the weather. and we welcome in the meteorologist from abc 6 wxys. in columbus, ohio, good morning, bill kelly. >> he agreed to sing the forecast. like the s.a.g. awards. ♪ you're getting a nice forecast ♪ is that close? did i match him? >> i'm impressed. >> let me start with snowfall. 6 inches in st. cloud, minnesota. 4.5 in minneapolis. also a record. generally about 1 to 3 inches around. boston, 2 inches of snow. take a look at the video, but
